Ron Paul for Senate: New Poll Says Texans Demand It

Ron Paul: Let the campaign begin!
As America faces the challenges of the 21st century, it is safe to say it needs as many Pauls in the Senate as possible. And we're not talking first names, either.

Texas, it seems, agrees.

A new poll from PPP shows Texans are demanding that Kay Bailey Hutchison's Senate seat go to Ron Paul next year, the Brazoria County congressman whose son is a (wingnut) Kentucky senator.

"A Ron Paul candidacy would instantly make this one of the most interesting Senate races in the country," PPP's Dean Debnam says. "If his son can get elected, what's to say he can't?"

Ummm....common sense amongst the Texas electorate? Nah, you're right -- what's to say he can't.

Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, who we think has finally wound up his inauguration speech, is first among GOP voters in the preference poll with 23 percent, but don't be fooled.

Paul's 21 percent is merely a sleeping tiger begging to be awakened. As soon as all of Texas learns, as Brazoria County has, about the evils of the Federal Reserve System, he's a shoo-in for the upper chamber. Unless he decides to win the Presidency, of course.

Attorney General Greg Abbott came in third in the poll, with 14 percent, and everyone else was in single digits.

We have to be very careful. Media is very friendly to a Ron Paul Senate run. Why? Because they do not want him on the national stage running for President.

Wow! Here's a sentence I NEVER thought I'd utter:

Kay Bailey is starting to look good!

Someone give her a whole warehouse of notebooks and she'll still look good, by comparison.... Remember, Libertarians sound sensible for about 3 paragraphs, then it's time to Google the nearest sanitarium!

The only 'wingnuts' as you call them are people like Richard Connelly writing silly wingnut blogs like this. See me call you a wingnut. See you now are a wingnut. Get it wingnut? Wingnut! (wow I see why you do it - feels so good!). Wingnut! Wingnut! Wingnut! Wow this is fun. Sure beats thinking. Thanks wingnut!

Ron Paul is a true american hero, taking on the establishment and their phony, greedy agenda. He's doing it for you. This article is really dumb, Ron Paul is the only man of the people left in Politics.

If the Texas electorate has common sense, why do Rick Perry's Republicans now have a super-majority?

Even though people vote against their own best interests all the time (see" Ron Paul's district), I don't think he can win statewide. I do think he could split the Republican vote and hurt their chances of holding on to the seat.
